Hi,

My friend dropped by this weekend, and brought his bike with him. It is a Ravell. Never seen these before. He bought it new, some 20 or more years ago, mail order!

It seems to be a well spec'd tourer (Suntour rear mech and levers, shimano F/M, 531st, all original), with a lazy steering angle, which allowed him to ride without hands for a lot of our ride. He nearly fell off when he tried it on my Raleigh :lol:

I am trying to get him to give it a bit of a clean and polish, to save the chrome etc, but he is a bit resistant :roll:

Anyone else come across this make before?

I think you mean a REvell. The Romany was a highly respected tourer in its time.

Revell, retailed by Madsion and the Romany built (I think) by F.W Evans.

Roadking.
